25 March 2020, Bangkok – MQDC has teamed up with the Department of Health under the Ministry of Public Health and the Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC) to give guidelines for fighting Coronarvirus 2019 (COVID-19) in residences and mixed-use buildings.
The 3 organizations came together for the first time for an online presentation on safety measures for condominiums, shops, malls, and offices.
The presentation gave information on looking after common areas and high-risk locations. It covered procedures as well as the correct use of equipment under the “Rule of 3” to “reduce, avoid, care”.
Mr. Keerin Chutumstid, President of the Property & Service Business Group of MQDC, said: "We are delighted that the Department of Health considers MQDC to be a leader in health in the property sector and has chosen MQDC and RISC to set standards for managing residences and condominiums for everyone’s safety.
“We value the health and safety of residents, office workers, and shoppers at over 30 projects where we oversee housing and offices, so everyone can live a normal life with the greatest security under our mission ‘For All Well-Being’.”
He outlined MQDC’s key measures in 8 areas as well as its workshops on making alcohol-based hand gels and fabric masks.
Dr. Pattrarat Tannukit, an expert in infection prevention and control at MQDC’s Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC), said: "RISC has implemented infection prevention measures in 3 main areas: people, buildings, and facilities and service.”
She presented key precautions including staff training, protective gear, controlled access, ventilation, communications, and special procedures for services such as waste disposal.
